Surviving summer cookouts and get togethers

Saturday, May 19, 2018

My strategy for surviving summer get-togethers has two parts.

1. Bring something that I like and can eat.

2. Wait to be at the back of the line. By positioning myself at the back of the line, most of the calorie-laden temptations will be gone or at least be less appealing. Also, this delaying action tells my inner self that I have the self-control to wait.

    That’s actually pretty smart. I do always bring a dish that I can eat and not feel guilty, aren’t we just smart cookies ;)

    I think cookouts are great I can get just a burger and all the fixings and no bun. People find that intriguing
